One of Mexico’s most senior prosecutors has been arrested on the US border and charged with a conspiracy to smuggle drugs.

Edgar Veytia, the Attorney General in the Mexican state of Nayarit, is one of the most powerful men ever to have been accused of direct involvement in the drugs trade.

An indictment in New York which was unsealed this week accuses Veytia – also known as ‘Diablo’ (Devil) – of conspiring to smuggle cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine to the United States between January 2013 and last month.

The indictment says at least one kilo of heroin, five kilos of cocaine, 500 grams of methamphetamine and 1,000 kilos of marijuana were involved.
